Located between Morpeth and Alnwick, Macdonald Linden Hall Golf & Country Club was built by merchant and banker Charles William Bigge in 1812. The property is set in 450 acres of private grounds and parkland with views of the Cheviot Hills and wild Northumberland landscapes.

Walkers will have plenty of options for a ramble, with Northumberland National Park and coastal strolls at Seahouses both around a 30-minute drive away. Other local attractions include Alnwick Castle (20 minutes' drive), Bamburgh Castle (40 minutes' drive) and the shops and nightlife of Newcastle city centre, which is 35 minutes' drive away.

The hotel has an 18-hole golf course, a driving range, and spa and fitness facilities. The health club is free for guests and has a gym, a 12-metre indoor heated pool, a sauna and a Jacuzzi.

The 2-AA-Rosette Dobson Restaurant provides a fine-dining experience (Friday-Sunday), or you can eat in the more informal Linden Tree pub. The AA Restaurant Guide 2017 describes the upscale Dobson Restaurant as a "relaxed setting for well-conceived dishes" topped off with "relaxed, professional service".

The AA says "good-sized bedrooms have a modern style". Inside you'll find traditional décor with TVs, and free Wi-Fi, tea, coffee and mineral water. The spacious Executive and Feature Rooms also provide free fruit and chocolate, a fluffy bathrobe and slippers, and countryside views.

Was unable to use the spa as no lockers were available Had dinner booked at 8:30. Was down at the bar at 8:10 and let them know we arrived. Was still waiting at 8:55 and had to ask to be seated. Food was burnt. Service was slow. Had to ask for water. Waitress did not speak English so was unable to assist us. We have no problem with this but perhaps front of house is not the best place for an employee who cannot speak English. Bath was so small my wife could not lay in it despite her being 5 foot 6.

Very comfortable hotel in beautiful surroundings. Excellent food and v good service

This was v good value deal but the £25 dinner allowance doesn’t really cover 2 courses with most main courses being just below the £20 mark. This might take some folk by surprise

We had intended to dine casually in the hotel “pub” but unfortunately this was closed. A limited menu was available in the bar. Without too much trouble, and the benefit of WiFi we found an excellent hostelry in the nearby village of Felton. The hotel provided a good breakfast once our order was rectified.

The carpets and woodwork in the rooms and around the spa area is very tired
